Corey and I are getting to know our new neighborhood pretty well. In the past week we’ve biked to the Dollar store and to this awesome sale at REI–we arrived in the last hour at the former, just when the 30% off signs were being switched to 60% off. Pretty sweet. I finally got a rain jacket after four years of being wet and sniffly.
I turned down the job at the Boys & Girls Club because I didn’t think I was the right person for it. I’m still looking… I mean, I’ve only been back in PDX for eleven days, for goodness sakes, so I should go a little easy on myself! I have an interview tomorrow morning to be an ESL teacher. It’s such a pet peeve of mine when people don’t get back to me or follow up to the applications I send them.
We went to the Milwaukie Farmer’s market this morning. Surprisingly, there was no culinary mushroom stand in sight! So we talked to the market managers, and hopefully by Wednesday we’ll hear back from them if they have a space available to rent us. They sure did seem excited about having a mushroom stand, so that was definitely a good sign. The idea of going into the mushroom-selling business still feels a little hard for my brain to wrap around. But very appealing. We found about 20 pounds of chanterelles and lobsters last Friday alone.
I have 54 seconds remaining on the public library computer, so I guess I’m going to have to go ahead and post this.
